The interesting experiment of Schubert and Lingenfelter (1) demonstrates metastable freezing of water to ice under a pressure low enough so that both the water and the ice are superheated with respect to the vapor phase. Contrary to the authors' statement, this phenomenon has been observed previously, in fact, under even more extreme and striking conditions.
